This is what I wanted and suggested in the first place. I feel Dana jumped the gun when he announced Diaz would be the number one contender if Diaz defeated Miller. This fight, if it was to happen, - would draw more views and bring better clarity to the LW division.

Most likely - the two will eventually meet but IMO it is the timing of the fight which makes it interesting....and right now, the timing seems perfect. Assuming they both get their title shots and fail, a fight between them will not be as anticipated as it is now.

Would rather see Nate get his shot against the winner of Bendo-Frankie while Showtime dukes it out with Cowboy for the winner of that fight. Would give time for guys like Gray and Melvin G to work their way back into the title picture.

I think it would be a spectacular fight...but I also think Nate would win it fairly handily.



I disagree.

BlueSkiesBurn: "I agree with Cowcatcher. I want to watch Showtime fight Nate Diaz! In fact, I want to see an epic trilogy!"



Pookie: "I want to watch one of them win the title first, and then rematch infinitely!"



Jjeans: "Hahahahaha"

I wish fighters took the Liddell approach and said "fuck this, I'm not waiting around...set up a fight".



Exactly the reference I was thinking of.

Liddell fighting Babalu was epic. It added tension to the fight (the fact that he was risking his title shot) and made the knockout that much sweeter.

I would L-O-V-E to see this fight. Seeing as Pettis is one of my favorite fighters. I think it would be one heck of a fight. This would be a huge hit if it was a Main Event or Co-Main Event on a Fox card.

This sounds like a sick match up. Having fighters wait around for like 8 months and plus is not what the fans want but I understand they look for the bigger paydays. I say this is a war for the first round but I see nate start to break down pettis in the 2nd round. Pettis should follow the condit blue print on how to beat the diaz brothers which is throw a stike and run if he wants to win.
